Welcome to the Vintage Alphabet Party!

Hello Everybody! So glad you could attend the March Vintage Alphabet Party.
March's letter is twofold....C and D.... sorry, but we have to double and triple some months. 
Show off your vintage 'C'omforters, 'C'renolin skirts, 'C'ross-stitch or 'C'oloring Books. Your vintage 'D'ishtowels, 'D'epression Glass, 'D'ioramas, or 'D'ime Store memories. These are just a few suggestions.  We Can't wait to see all your vintage collectible C and D ideas! 

Please remember this is a blog get-together You may place items that you sell in your blog post giving background and info, or how you use or enhance the vintage item. You can let party-goers know it's for sale on your site, but please do not link your selling sites. 
Selling sites (i.e. Etsy or Ebay) will be removed from Mr. Linky
This post stays up for the week, join in at your convenience.

The Mr Linky is easy to use. After you have "published" your Vintage Alphabet post on your blog, stop by  Etsy Cottage Style and put your name and the permalink to your  post into the Mr. Linky's sign up box.

What is a permalink? A permalink is the direct link to your post, as opposed to your general blog address. When someone visits Etsy Cottage Style during the week and clicks on your link, they will be taken directly to your Vintage Alphabet post instead of having to search through your most recent posts to find it.

There are two ways to get your permalink. One way is to click on the title of your Vintage Alphabet post, then right click on the URL address showing in the address field at the top and select Copy. Then paste this link into Mr. Linky which will be available here. Click on "Enter" and you are all done! You will see your permalink posted. :-) Or, another way to add your link for Mr. Linky is to right click on the title of your Vintage Alphabet  post, select "copy shortcut" and then paste this link into the URL box on the Mr. Linky sign-up.

Thank you Melody...I knew if I thought hard enough I could come up with a hammered aluminum link that began with C..Continental Chrysanthemum motif. Thank you for being a gracious hostess.
♥, Susan

What a fun party!!! I just had to participate this month. Thanks for hosting :)
I think I accidentally added my link twice!!! I am sorry I don't know how to delete one link.

I have soooo many collections that start with C and D, I had a hard time deciding what to show!

I finally went with my vintage cards. :-)

Thanks Melody!

Melody, This is my first time seeing your blog ( I think :) )
And I love this idea of the Alphabet Party! Also, who or where did you get the beautiful graphics on the sides and banner of your blog???? Just really pretty!

Glad you stopped by Sandy. Etsy Cottage Style is a group of artists and crafters who love the cottage style especially vintage. The ECS BLog is a copilation of its members. Debbie at Marionberry Cottage coordinates the blog. Get in touch with her she is a wizard at the tech stuff. If you'd like to join us at the ECS Group I think there's a link for that on this page.
